I have often wondered why we know so little about Holland, compared to France, when I think Holland is actually closer in distance? There has been some repression of the fact that William actually invaded in order to take over the throne.

On his wikipedia page the dates for end of his being Stadtholder/ Prince of Orange and King of England all end 1702 so he must have combined the roles and been good at delegating.

Who ruled in Holland after William of Orange became William III of England? Or was there a co-dominion with Holland?
